that the president obama had chosen your father's bible? >> ewe got a call from his offie stating that they wanted to, the president would like to use one of dr. king's bibles and we were like, oh, my gosh. and then putting it together, we realized that it was king day and then the hope for us, quite frankly, is that we know that the president will derive inspiration, but more importantly, the hope is that the president along with congress will derive inspiration to get something done the kind of spiritual inspiration that dad derived, and dad used it when he was preparing for the first sermon at the montgomery church at the dexter avenue baptist church and dad used it all over the road to derive inspiration, and the hope is that the nation will get inspiration as well. >> you mentioned all of the notable days in history that are all converging here in 2013, and among those, the "i have a dream" speech 50 years ago this summer. how does president obama fit into what your father was talking about? >> well, i think that the number one, the president did something that many president

states but doctors aren't sure how much worse this epidemic will get. >>> in today's strategy talk cabinet conflict. in an interview today senator bob corker raised new questions about chuck hagel, president obama's nominee for secretary of defense. >> i think another thing, george, that's going to come up is just his overall temperament and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> joining me now, former republican congressman tom davis and jonathan alter, msnbc political analyst and a bloomberg view columnist. welcome to you both. >> hey, alex. >> representative davis, i'll begin with you, sir. we just heard senator corker saying he has questions about chuck hagel's temperament and his ability to run the pentagon. now, i know you served on the hill about the same time with him. have you ever heard anything about that? >> well, look, i think beer going to be in a nomination fight at this point. the real question is is he going to be able to come up with five republicans to -- do they want to filibuster it? i think right now we're sittin

moving forward with them. the secretary of state also spoke with the prime minister of algeria yesterday. she has had several conversations with him since this crisis first started. president obama spoke with prime minister david cameron, and he is being briefed regularly on the developments of this situation, alex. one problem, though, is getting information that is very difficult to get. information from that region. it's often quite murky. alex? >> especially under these circumstances. >> yes. >> let me gelt to the domestic front. wow. what happened in williamsburg? because the house gop agrees to temporarily lift the debt ceiling for three months. what kind of surprise was that? what does that do for the debate now? >> reporter: alex, i think it changes the debate, because house speaker john boehner, remember, initially said that any increase in the debt limit had to be offset with dollar for dollar spending consults. so what happened over the past several days that the republicans essentially moved off of that point. they agreed to increase the debt limit without spending

world is the group of presidents of the united states. >> right. and the most elite of the elite are the group who have been re-elected. >> mm-hmm. >> and so i think that this is their chance, this is obama's chance to really say put it out there and say this is -- the first time is really -- this is what i want to do, and the second time is, like, this is what i want to be. and i think that in a case of a black president it's even more important because the first time around it was jubilant, it was the first black president, it was so exciting. the second time around is this wasn't a fluke. this guy really did it. he did a good job, and the american people reaffirmed that he did a good job and re-elected him. and so many-in some way because he's a black president i think that the second inaugural for him is more important than the first. >> well, that is the reason for the second inaugural. let's go to nbc's peter alexander because peter was there for that d -- the more intimate inaugural, if you will, having been sworn in some 35 minutes ago, give us some details. >> reporter: alex, th
